Writing for The Daily Athenaeum, Lacey Palmer previews an ambitious citywide cleanup being organized by the Society for Environmental Professionals:
The West Virginia University Society of Environmental Professionals is hoping to open the eyes of Morgantown community members with a citywide cleanup.
“There is a saying that you don’t see things that you aren’t looking for. While litter is overlooked and ignored by members of society, we ask that you join us to bring attention to a growing problem,” said Catherine Artis of the SEP. “How often have you walked to class or wherever and just walked past a piece of trash?

The SEP is dedicated to promoting ethical practices, professional standards in the environmental fields, and academic and career development in environmental protection.
